Black Tot Finest Caribbean – 46.2% ABV
A few years after releasing Black Tot Last Consignment, the question became – what do we do when the rum runs out? Rather than try to copy Last Consignment, they decided to reboot the blend completely – what would the Navy drink if they were having a tot blended for them today? They experimented with different countries and flavours until they settled on a combination of Barbados, Guyana, and Jamaica. Each country lends different flavour notes to the blend – Barbados is fruity and tropical with beautiful vanilla and coconut notes, the Guyana rum brings a coffee and cacao richness to the blend, with the Jamaica providing that quintessential funk, banana, and spice on the end. Bottled at 46.2%, there is enough alcohol there to shine through in cocktails and it also makes for a delicious sipper when drinking neat.

Nose | The copper-coloured liquid is immediately inviting, with tropical breezes of pineapple, melon and a feast of Caribbean sweets. Thick scents of banana fritters, plantain tarts, overripe mango and crème brûlée are lifted by fresh honeysuckle blossom and eucalyptus.
Palate | Rounded and rich, with butter toffee, banana cream, and caramel to start. Gentle cinnamon and allspice build with more fruit – baked apples, pineapple cubes, and dried mango – joined by coffee, dark chocolate, and black pepper.
Finish | Chocolatey coffee fades, leaving roasted bananas and a tingle of anise.
We hope you enjoy this glimpse into the world of Black Tot Rum.
